Barcelona Stopped Suarez’s Atletico Madrid Transfer

Barcelona have put an end to Luis Suarez’s move to Atletico Madrid, according to reports.

The 33-year-old’s switch to Juventus ended due to passport delays which brought LaLiga rivals Atletico into view.

Spanish outlet AS reported on Tuesday morning that Barca president Josep Maria Bartomeu had dramatically forbidden the move.

The 57-year-old Blaugrana chief is said to have decided against paying the Uruguayan’s contract off so he can join a fellow title challenger.

As part of the the striker’s agreement to terminate his deal, a number of blacklisted clubs have been named that he cannot join.
